Seen on the street last week in the Bronx.
I have a friend who won’t buy books on the street because she doesn’t want lice in her library. She doesn’t mean this as a put down, her concern is authentic. I never thought of it that way though I’m picky about the condition of a book when I buy it on the street. Condition, my desire for the title, and the price. Last week I picked up a good paperback copy of E.L. Doctorow’s Book on Daniel. What’s the last book you got on the street?
